Hey guys, long-time lurker, first-time poster.
I just picked up a brand new 2016 ZX6R in Metallic Matte Carbon Gray / Flat Ebony! This is my second bike, I have only been riding for 6-months, and my first bike is a 2016 Yamaha FZ-07 in Raven Black, which will be going to a new owner this week.
I always wanted a Ninja ZX6R, but due to people telling me not to start off with a Supersport, I got the Yamaha. I didn't want to start off with a 250-300cc bike either, because I know I would get bored with it in less than a month. The FZ-07 has been great, and is very easy to ride. I threw a bunch of parts on the bike, thinking I would be riding it for atleast a year, but 6-months later, I was ready for what I always wanted - The NINJA ZX6R
I bought the Ninja from a dealer that is an hour away from home, which made me have to ride the bike home in freezing temps! It was all worth it in the end. This thing is a rocket!
I have already installed OES
Frame/Fork/Spool Sliders, and have the Motodynamic Fender Eliminator waiting to be installed. I plan on added the Motodynamic Integrated Taillight as well. I will be replacing the windscreen for something that is darker, and has better wind protection. I'm leaning PUIG Race Screen, in either Dark Smoke, Black, or "Carbon Fiber".
I would like to get a slip-on exhaust on the bike ASAP, but I am torn with all the options out there. My first choice was the M4 GP Shorty, but after doing some reading, I am hearing that people were getting annoyed with how loud it is at highway speeds. Now, I'm not allergic to "LOUD", as the Akrapovic No-baffle Full Exhaust on my Yamaha sounds like a Muscle Car, but I am open to suggestions
I would also love to hear what your favorite mods are on the 2013-2017 ZX6R.
